THE REAL WORLD – Contrary to your long held personal beliefs about your true potential, new research reveals that if you were to buckle down and really apply yourself from this moment forward, the results would likely be both short lived and thoroughly unimpressive.
“In fact, most people wouldn’t even notice that you’re putting in the extra effort,” says University of the West Indies behavioral scientist Neil Gordon. “You might get into that school you’ve been considering, sure, but you’re not going to change the world or anything.”
The report identifies a clear and unsurpassable ceiling on your life that is likely the result of a combination of factors, including the accumulation of bad decisions that you’ve made thus far, which actually will have a pivotal negative effect on your standard of living in the future, and just the random nature of existing with millions of people who have a sizeable head start on their own dreams and aspirations.
“If you do commit to improving yourself right now, the resulting decent physique and healthy diet should extend your life for another few months or so, which is great.” continued Gordon. “Nobody’s writing any books though.”
Gordon later advised that despite the findings, it’s still a good time to get started on that dream career of yours, which you are more likely to enjoy if you train yourself to value hard life lessons over unattainable things like lasting personal achievements or tangible markers of success.
“That’s what it’s really about anyway. Not crazy money and fame and women or what have you, but experience and peace of mind. Trust me on this.”
After a wistful glance in the mirror, Gordon concluded by recommending that you get started on realizing the vision for your best self right away, as you don’t want to know what happens if you continue to take it easy.
